Evaro music spans five decades from the 1950’s to the present. The Evaro’s have performed national and international moving people from all different cultures with their unique sound. The Third Gereration of EVARO’s were signed to Motown Records in the 1970’s. The Evaro’s credits include: T.V. shows such as: The Gong Show, radio, opening up for bigs acts such as: Three Dog Night and Steppenwolf, T.V. commercials, newspaper articles, magazines, 16 magazine, Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter and Honorees of “The Palm Springs Walk of Stars”. The Evaro’s consist of and incredibly musical talented family, professional vocalists and musicians that put on an extraordiary performance. The Evaro’s have since gone on to fulfill all of their individual endeavors. Our Father, Gene Evaro, who was 13 around the time of being signed, went on to write songs for major motion pictures such as: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall, Robert Di Niro’s Jacknife, MirrorMirror, and Lambada..He has since been signed with Sony Latin as a producer and songwriter.
So, tell us the story of how your band formed.
We began to play music together in the winter of 2008 once moving back to the desert following the death of our sister Natalie Evaro who tragically lost her life in a car accident in Nashville, TN. After considerable downtime and mourning, we came to the conclusion that the only true way to heal and express ourselves, was the one way we knew how, music. The abrupt success of our band has inspired the progress and appetite to create and evolve as a band.
